campaign that happened last year during which you have mitt romney, new gingrich and rick santorum agree enthusiastically we need immigration reform to attract more high skilled immigrants and they kept asking what about the border? literally they were having a little conversation about the bill, and then it was completely ignored because that doesn't sound like a border of sense to me. then mitt romney gave a speech about immigration reform that was oriented of facilitating the family unification and also for skilled visas etc. this is a marginal issue yet interestingly in the most recent years that we have data, you have more immigration, more skilled immigration than less skilled and also more presentation from asia than latin america. that doesn't mean any kind of change and it doesn't mean that mitt romney isn't doing well with the voters, yet it is also true that the immigration the date is framed in some ways and framed and others, it's important to keep in mind particularly as the composition of the population changes. i guess i see these questions are differently in that i see t
's an accident. the climate of the world is changing. the only plan elt so far we live in unless gingrich is right and we'll have a colony on the moon. as long as we are here, we have to whatever we can do save the planet. we have to ensure that our air is clear. do we not want to have clean air. of course we go. there were so many emergency air quality i can't count how many here in the richmond. i think the same way around the state. we have to look at the regulations to see if they hurt the coal industry as much as you say they are. we have one of the best fields off of coast for here for wind farm. why aren't we trying to invest our money in wind farms or solar? i mean the sun the there for the next 90 million or billion years. npr one night. why aren't we doing what we can recycle and reuse. the days of the fossil fuels are numbered. whether we look at what's happening in the middle east or not. we have the national security issues related to the access to oil and we will ultimately have national security issues with regard to access to coal. if anyone is seeing anybody interviewed i
gingrich really push the library to make comments and all that information available to the public. as we started plastering the transition last time around and going forward through this congress, i think the speaker, the reader can cantor and the republican congress as a whole has tried to clean on transparency issues and made them a priority. this not manifested in a number of different ways during our rules package, most notably was the rules change, which set for the first time in the history of the republic that paper document and electronic brake weblog. if something was available electronically, it was as good as if it had been printed by the government printing office, stuck in a truck, delivered here and distributed to offices. there are other things we did, mandatory webcasting, try to really push committees to do that, maximum extent practical. we also as part of the effort to make it tronic taxed available and measure around the first to comply with the three day rule. we created house.gov, centralized portal in the coming week. so far, for all of this year, that has been onl
gingrich was talking about. spent another question. recently one of mitt romney's operatives made a statement to reporters when they're pushing him on the claim about, well, it's our most effective at and we're not going to have our campaign dictated by fact checkers. i think a lot of probably naÏve news editors were rather shocked at the cynicism that they heard coming out of this polltakers mouth. so my question, you've been around the longest, were you shocked? did this surprise you? >> i really can't say that it was because, you know, they had kind of behavior that way all along. they are certainly not terribly worried. they're not worried enough to change the rhetoric when something is pointed out to them. and in speed do you mean the romney campaign's we? campaign's? >> now. >> [inaudible] >> this is -- my take on this, i'm in the context of that question and answer was actually they were saying that this is the most effective ad, and john of abc said that got four pinocchios, so the response as well, we are not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. and wh
since the mid-90s when speaker gingrich really pushed the library to make comments and all of that information available to the public. and as we started this, both during the transition, the last time around and going forward through this congress, i think the speaker, leader cancer and frankly the republican conference as a whole is try to lead on transparency and his made it a priority. this got manifested god manifested in a number of different ways during most notably was the rules change which said for the first time in the history of the republic that paper and electronics versus the document were equivalent and if something was available electronically, it was as good as if it would have been printed by the government renting office, stuck on a truck delivered over here and distributed to individual offices. there were other things we did, mandatory webcasting, trying to really push committees to do that, at the maximum extent practicable. we also as part of the effort to make electronic text available and to serve as a place where we could measure our own efforts t
with newt gingrich. we have to get back to that context when it is not about political party but taking care of people and moving forward. leadership is not about blame. it is the house's fall for the president's fault. leadership is about rolling up your sleeves and locking yourself in a room and leading by example. congress has not been able to come of with a budget in 2,000 days. that is ridiculous. let's come up with a budget. there is legislation that is bipartisan. no budget no pay legislation says if congress doesn't do its job and have a responsible budget they don't get paid. that is a step in the right direction. my pledge is i will co-sponsor that legislation which is bipartisan and holds congress accountable for doing with their job which is passing a budget and they haven't done it in 2,000 days. has the no budget no pay legislation. >> the question is about compromise. give us another ec would be willing to compromise on. bera: there are many of us who thing no child left behind is going in the wrong direction. i will stand against my own party and the president. i don't think
